Tour Overview

Lima, the capital of Peru and a vibrant metropolis that was once given the apt nickname 'City of Kings' by Spanish conquistadors, is the first stop on this 13-day adventure in South America and with its world-class museums, beautiful architecture, plentiful historical sites and friendly people, promises no shortage of entertainment. Lima's archaeological museums showcase a fascinating overview of the many Peruvian civilisations, from prehistoric times to the present day, and are brimming with ancient artifacts, including the largest collection of gold in the world. Moving on to Cuzco, we take time to explore the archaeological capital of the Americas and a city that was once the capital of one of the greatest ancient civilisations in history; the Incan Empire. On this leg of our tour, we come face-to-face with some of the most memorable Incan ruins and as we travel along the 'Sacred Valley of the Incas' and on to Machu Picchu, a magical historic site that alone would warrant a tour to Peru. Hopping over to Ecuador, we catch a flight from Quito to our embarkation port for our cruise amid the Galapagos Islands, an archipelago that receives international acclaim for being the greatest naturalist destination on the planet. Within the bounds of this spectacular archipelago, we discover that each island is an entire world unto itself, each with its own unique characteristics and diverse array of wildlife that has never learned to shy away from Man. Nowhere else on the planet can you find a wildlife experience akin to that of the Galapagos and, set to the backdrop of volcanic landscapes of white-sand beaches and lush rolling hills, provides the most idyllic setting for photographs.
